Sentence: The Last Will and Testament of I.M. Overdatop clearly stated that Little Chipper would be taken care of for the rest of his life.

Sentence: There was an enormous aquarium smack-bang in the middle of the manor's ballroom. It was a benefishery of the old CODger's estate. He left the manor to his great-nephew providing that he kept the fish in the manner to which they were accustomed. Instead of gravel, the bottom was covered with a layer of glittering gemstones. The fish had their own chef, and fresh water was shipped from Lake Malawi every month to make them feel at home.

Etymology: beneficiary + fish + fishery


Very clever. Hope the great-nephew doesn't become part of the codfish aristocracy! - OZZIEBOB, 2007-09-22: 07:25:00
